Besiktas have signed Fulham striker Kostas Mitroglou on a one-year deal according to Turkish newspaper HaberTürk.

The Black Eagles are reported to have agreed a loan deal and will pay Fulham a ?2.5 million fee as part of the deal.

Besiktas have yet to confirm the move – Turkish clubs are obliged to release transfer deals on the stock exchange.

The Super Lig outfit are expected to release a statement regarding the transfer on Monday.

The Eagles are planning to replace Portuguese international Hugo Almeida who is expected to leave this summer with the Greek international.

Fulham signed Mitroglou for £11 million from Olympiakos last January however, a series of injuries restricted him to just three appearances.

The 26-year-old is currently with the Greek national team at the 2014 World Cup.

The Greek international, who took a hit to his side and had to be taken off during their World Cup Group C draw against Japan on Thursday, will be fit in time for their final game against Ivory Coast.
